    Die Kommunikation zwischen Mensch und Fahrzeug sowie die sozioökonomischen Folgen des vernetzten und automatisierten Fahrens stehen im Mittelpunkt der japanisch-deutschen Forschungskooperation CADJapanGermany (Connected and Automated Driving). Zwei Institute des Deutschen Zentrums für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) sind an diesem internationalen Vorhaben beteiligt und bringen ihre Kompetenzen im Bereich der Verkehrsforschung ein. Ziel der teilnehmenden Forschungseinrichtungen und Universitäten ist es, technologische Innovationen zu fördern und den gesellschaftlichen Dialog zu diesem für die beiden Automobilnationen Japan und Deutschland wichtigen Zukunftsthema zu unterstützen.

    ACM IUI 2020 is the 25th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community and serves as a premier international forum for reporting outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces. ACM IUI is where the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) community meets the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. IUI 2020 is also very interested in contributions from related fields, such as psychology, behavioral science, cognitive science, computer graphics, design, the arts, etc.

    The Conference of Experimental Psychologists (also known as „Tagung experimentell arbeitender Psychologen“, TeaP) is a popular psychological research conference of junior and senior scientists working in Experimental Psychology in the German speaking countries Austria, Germany and parts of Switzerland and Italy. It has a long-standing tradition and is run at a different university each year since 1959. In 2020, the TeaP will take place in Jena, Germany from 21st till 25th of March.

    Ziel des Projektes ViVre ist die Vernetzung virtualisierter Verkehrsinfrastrukturen und automatisierter Fahrfunktionen für zentrale Verkehrsknoten, um damit Bausteine für innovative und nachhaltige Mobilitätslösungen zu entwickeln. Insbesondere werden Konzepte für neue virtuelle Haltestellen erarbeitet, im Straßenverkehr umgesetzt und evaluiert. Dabei werden neue Funktionen automatisierter vernetzter Fahrzeuge und virtualisierter Infrastruktur entwickelt.

  • Workshop at MuC’19: „Emotions in the Age of Automated Driving – Developing Use Cases for Empathic Cars“

    Join our workshop „Emotions in the Age of Automated Driving – Developing Use Cases for Empathic Cars“ at MuC’19:

    Improving user experience of highly automated vehicles is key to increase their acceptance. One possibility to realize this is the design of empathic cars that are capable of assessing the emotional state of vehicle occupants and react to it accordingly by providing tailored support. At the moment, the central challenge is to derive relevant use cases as basis for the design of future empathic cars. Therefore, we propose a workshop that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in affective computing, affective interfaces and automated driving as forum for the development of a roadmap towards empathic vehicles using design thinking methods. During the workshop, we will gain a common understanding of the central concepts and listen to impulse talks about current and recent projects on emotions during automated driving. Based on this, relevant use cases are generated in group work and discussed with the goal to identify potential research and knowledge gaps. Finally, a road map for research towards the realization of automated empathic cars is formulated from the results.

  • Driving anger expression in Germany – Validation of the Driving Anger Expression Inventory for German drivers

    Our most current paper on driving anger is online:

    Brandenburg, S., Oehl, M., & Hartwig, C. (2019). Driving Anger Expression in Germany – Validation of the Driving Anger Expression Inventory for German Drivers. Traffic Injury Prevention. DOI: 10.1080/15389588.2018.1493467

     

    Abstract

    Objective: The main objective of this article is to examine whether the Driving Anger Expression Inventory (DAX) applies to German drivers because this scale has previously been given to drivers in many different countries.

    Methods: We applied German versions of the DAX, the Driving Anger Scale (DAS), and the State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI) to a sample of 501 German drivers. We computed confirmatory factor analysis and principal axis factoring (PAF) analysis to examine the structure of driving anger expression in Germany. Finally, we related the drivers’ anger exp ression scores to their driving anger experiences and their general anger propensities to assess the validity of the DAX for German drivers.

    Results: Results indicated that the DAX’s original factor structure does not apply to German drivers because the confirmatory factor analysis did not show a good model fit. An item analysis revealed that many DAX items had no meaningful variability. They were excluded from further analysis. The subsequent PAF analysis indicated that German drivers do not use personal physical aggression to express their driving anger. Instead, they reported unique preventive anger expression management behavior. In addition, their driving anger expressions were significantly related to their driving anger experiences and their general anger propensities indicated the validity of the refined DAX for German drivers.

    Conclusions: We conclude that German drivers do not use strong behaviors to express their driving anger. Many statements of Deffenbacher et al.’s (Behav Res Ther. 40:717–737, 2002) original American questionnaire were not applicable for our sample of German drivers. These findings are in line with several other studies showing discrepancies in driving anger expression in various countries. Future investigations should examine the reasons for discrepancies in driving anger expression.

    Keywords: Driving anger expression, personality and driving, Driving Anger Expression Inventory (DAX), emotions in driving

    Our workshop ‚Emotional GaRage‚ at Auto UI 2018 in Toronto was the most well attended workshop at Automotive UI. The workshop was planned as a design thinking workshop to explore and design to user experiences of emotions in the vehicle. The workshop consisted of several exercises exploring the ways in which emotions could be detected, the relative difficulty of detecting different emotions in different channels, identifying the most significant emotions that occur during driving, speculating on how autonomous driving will change the emotions associated with driving and a design prototyping session in which people prototyped solutions to emotionally difficult situations on the road. At the end of the workshop we recorded one minute videos reflecting on our experiences.

    Die Ausbreitung der Informationstechnik in alle Lebensbereiche macht praktisch alle Menschen auf unterschiedliche Weise zu Benutzerinnen oder Benutzern von Computern. Wurde die Frage der Benutzbarkeit bisher primär für Computer am Arbeitsplatz gestellt, so stellt sich am Anfang des neuen Jahrtausends die Frage viel breiter. Die Frage der Benutzbarkeit ist eine zentrale Frage in einer sich entwickelnden Informationsgesellschaft. Die Konferenzreihe “Mensch und Computer” eine Anstrengung, um verschiedene Fachgebiete und Praxisfelder in einen fruchtbaren Diskurs zu bringen und um voneinander zum Nutzen möglichst vieler Menschen zu lernen.

    Die aktuelle Mensch und Computer findet in Dresden statt (02.-05.09.2018).
